Kelsi Worrell has bowed out of the 50 free semifinals, where her 25.12 from this morning was the 8th fastest time of prelims. She was a bit off of her personal best of 24.98, but could have feasibly made the final. Worrell has already made the Olympic team with a win in the 100 fly, so perhaps she wanted to let someone move up to the semifinals for a shot at the final.
That person moving up is Margo Geer, whose 25.57 this morning earned her 17th. Geer has been under 25 before– if she can repeat that, she can probably get through to the final.
Meanwhile, Cierra Runge scratched the 800 free final tonight. Runge finished 5th in the 200 free final, and she’ll probably find herself on the 4×200 free relay in Rio. Runge was 8:31.59 in the 800 free prelims, about seven seconds off of her best time. Runge’s scratch would have moved 9th place finisher Becca Mann into the final, but Mann has been nursing a back injury and she scratched the race as well.
10th place prelims finisher Hannah Moore of NC State was 8:34.14 in prelims, just off of her lifetime best, and she’ll take lane 8 in the 800 free final tonight.
